Winter Woodsman Hand Puppet. Puppets are approximately 10” tall by 5” wide and come in 14x11” packaging.

The Winter Woodsman is, of course, inspired by the seminal Norwegian folk song of the same name that many of us are blessed to know. For those who don’t know or who, like many of us, were forced to memorize it phonetically in Norwegian, here is a translation of the lyrics. I’m not 100% on this, but I believe this is the same tune as PUSSY CATTY CAT by the Nazis From Mars.

THE WINTER WOODSMAN IS A BIG BLUE BEAR!
THE WINTER WOODSMAN IS A MAN NOT A BEAR!
THE WINTER WOODSMAN LOOKS LIKE A BIG BLUE BEAR!
BECAUSE THE WINTER WOODSMAN HAS A BIG BLUE FACE!
AND THE WINTER WOODSMAN IS A MAN THAT IS GAY AND COLD!

THE WINTER WOODSMAN TAKES HIS BATH IN THE SNOW
THE WINTER WOODSMAN HAS A BUSINESS FRIEND WITH A BOAT!
THE WINTER WOODSMAN LOST BOTH HIS FEET IN A FORREST FIRE LAST SUMMER!
THE WINTER WOODSMAN CAN’T DIGEST MOST FRUITS!
THE WINTER WOODSMAN IS A MAN THAT IS GAY AND COLD!

A lot of this is pretty tough to translate into English and it rhymes and flows a whole lot better in Norwegian, but it’s still a fun little tune!
